Pueblo in the early 1900's was hardly the unified, coordinated city it is now. In 1912, for example, what is now Pueblo was four municipalities with two city halls, two water-supply districts, two city school districts, and lots of inter-community rivalry and competition. Local business man Bert Scribner happened, in 1911, to visit the newly formed Rotary Club in Salt Lake City where differing factions had come together in friendship "in Rotary." He brought that concept to his community. Pueblo was one of the first cities of under 50,000 to be allowed to join Rotary. Pueblo formed their own club and Rotary then allowed their charter to be granted on 1 June 1912.
